Subject: Great Run
Saw all 5 of these shows and loved them all. Great transfer by Charlie as always. This isn't the best of the 5 but a good show. This is an example of needing to hear a whole run to get a feel for each show in its proper context.

Not the best show from the '78 Winterland run in October, but a respectable show nonetheless.

Set 1 - everything played solidly - Jed and LL > Supplication are, as the 'reviewr' below stated, the highlights. Some crazy PA buzz during LL is *not* your speaker system; when they get it plugged back there is a while new sound - Phil suddenly bouncing all over the place!

Set 2 - Franklin's Tower is just right, and Dancin' > Jam is a hot mess; for me my favorite moment of the set is the first few minutes out of Space into NFA - listen to how Jerry noodles the same note over and over as the band catches up - just absolutely gorgeous. Black Peter is about as perfect as they've ever played it, and A&A makes full use of Bobby and Donna's chemistry - I just love this period for this tune - they take it down and down and down and down....

Overall there is a some good stuff here, nothing utterly mind-blowing but worth a listen, for sure -

The first set has some high points (Tenn. Jed and Lightin'> Supplication), but as usual set 2 is where the magic happens. The whole thing is REAL good. Especially Franklin's and Black Peter. You need to hear a good number of shows to appreciate the uniqueness of this one - it has a real personality! Not 5 stars only because of considering '72 - '74.

Subject: From Egypt With Love
I'm not sure why Rhino didn't release all of the From Egypt Winterland run? Every moment of thoes shows should have been released! The band were on fire this night and their performance of Dancin' will blow you away. God bless you Charlie Miller, this is another great sounding board! I love the Dead's late 70's sound and this is a perfect example of the band at their best! Not a bad on on this tape, check it out!
